Close.... it's "cvs -n update".  Make it "-nq" to suppress the
per-directory "Updating" messages.

But this is generally an unsatisfactory thing.

For instance, if you use -P to prune out old, dead directories (common in Java source code, where source packages move around), cvs -q update -Pd (the real thing) is smart enough to not blabber about the empty directories, but cvs -nq update -Pd drones on about all the empty directories it was going to get, but won't because of -n.

It would be really nice to have a fast "cvs modified" command that could just do its thing based on the local CVS Entries files. It would have been even better to have a checksum in those files, so that you could do the check quickly without having to go to the server to get the checksums each time to compare revisions.
